think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a possibility. ifs nancy pelosi yesterday said that she absolutely does not want that to happen. and she still thinks that is a possibility. i do not think either party -- there just a beginning of this posturing and negotiations, i do not think either party wants to say, we are going to drive. fiscal cliff. they are in in this happy mood of trying to compromise. polling has shown recently that americans are not super confident that congress will actually be able to cut a deal. hear from betty,s a democratic caller. caller: thank you for taking my call. it is tedious for me, because you cannot trust it. for validity or facts. not only that, but even the news, over and over, there is response about kick the cannot. this is been going on for 12, 14, 24 months. kicking the can, yada yada. and i heard one thing, and that is, the president got some leverage. when he said -- i just stopped. the cuts. this is the leverage that could bring everybody together. stop the tax cuts. i do not want to think about them as an increase. just s
for leader nancy pelosi and senators pat leahy. and norm coleman. all of whom not just great leadership, real personal commitment. we should not just think them. we should shout their names across the land. i cannot even consider the number of lives that had been transformed in say by these people. it must be millions. people are right because these people exist. these people are heroes. this is civic duty. with the global citizen and mind. george bush is here. i would get matt damon to kiss him on the lips. i would give him a more irish, macho handshake. it is incredible. president bush's name is in the history books. the greatest health crisis and 600 years. both sides working. i just want to thank bono here. i want to thank bono. [applause] i want to thank bono for stepping away from the microphone. i knew he could not rhyme. i am so glad he can fall back on adding and subtracting. it might be the one thing all of us can agree on. all of this happened without social media. can you imagine? can you imagine what you can accomplish? that leverage if we're willing to use it. i think we are. i
don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit pollsters they agree with the president's position on tax policy. >> well, whether the president has a mandate is a matter of opinion. whether he has power is a matter of fact. this president now has enormous power, because of the expiring of all these various tax measures and because of the advent of the sequester. he's in a situation where he's in a doomsday contest with the republicans, but the doomsday bites republican constituencies harder than those of democrats and of course, the president doesn't have to face re-election so even if doomsday arrives he has less to fear from it than the republicans do. so he's in a very powerful position. and republicans are going to have to be very savvy about how they play this. to go back to your original question, about why -- what was the cause of the defeat, we'
: so, that is the latest on that. also this morning, "nancy pelosi considers leaving post as house democratic leader." "the decision could come as early as tomorrow, wednesday." washington journal will be live from capitol hill tomorrow with several lawmakers from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. to keep you updated on what is happening this week in washington. the looming fiscal cliff, that is what we are talking about with all of you today. how do we avoid it, should entitlement spending be part of the package? james, go head. caller: i had to retire because of back problems or whenever, but i do not get disability, i would not apply for it, it is an entitlement. it is ludicrous to ask people in my age bracket, people who pay for their medicare -- that is what people are not saying. we paid for it for a long time. many of us are sick, we are not asking for anyone to help us along. we are not asking for the government, we paid for this. what it really is is a pyramid scheme. you have to get people working in this country so that they can pay in. it is not the people cheating the system.
thing to put the guy at the very top to answer those questions. tell us about nancy pelosi and what her future holds. >> very interesting morning. if not for this scandal, that would really be all the talk, the buzz, leading up to today around the water cooler here on capitol hill. will she or won't she stay? she, of course, did decide she was going to stay for at least another two years as leader of the house democrats, and the image you see there on this screen, the imagery was kind of remarkable, suzanne. certainly we know and we have known that she has taken pride in the fact that she has -- is the highest ranking woman in history. she was the first female speaker of the house of representatives, but the imagery today of her surrounded by so many women, democratic women, obviously, in the house, currently serving newly elected women, really had not heard her hit that issue as hard as she did today, and, in fact, at one point when asked about why she wanted to stay, she sort of made a joke about the fact that if she didn't, that there would be four men around the table negotiating an
working on the crisis. in 2008 in september, go beyond not. in late 2007, george bush goes to nancy pelosi and harry reid and says i need a stimulus because the economy is in trouble. unlike mitch mcconnell the center right, let's work one out you can live with. so they did a stimulus with him rather than saying the economy slipped for us. in 2008 we do that t.a.r.p. together. bipartisanship in america ended in january 20, 2009, with mitch mcconnell say now my new job is to sit the president. even then we had a constructive two years. the breakdown is fairly recent and it's because the tea party, the extreme right took over the republican party, intimidated people that i'm optimistic for two reasons. first i think reality will be better. i think you'll see the health care bill provided benefits, financial reform bill provides stability in the sun will still go up in downtown new york in the morning and there still be very, very rich and have her money than anybody needs. but then there's the question, how will the republican party react? there's still a pretty people who say let's be conse
free range. nancy pelosi impose free range hens from exum re- -- in the captors in the building is remember. that california agenda violates the commerce clause of the constitution that where interstate commerce is regulate exclusively by congress, not the state. and our founding fathers understood but it needs to be stuck. i did put an amendment on the farm bill called the pike and mimic to protect interstate commerce an amendment which prohibits the states from regulating the means of production of our act product but there's a list that exists in the code. so that takes the states like california and arizona and florida out of the business of telling us, and iowa, how we're going to raise hands and produce eggs and how we're going to raise cattle and raise hogs. that's an important piece that as many fight in this campaign to go to have a lot of play in the press but that something was got to hold in the farm bill and that's another reason i want to get it to conference by the end of the year. >> i do hope that the farm bill comes to four, this bill, i hope it's an open robe
